<span style="font-size: 18px;">Ever Wondered About An Intercooler?</span>

Have you noticed how your Turbo engine seems more powerful and responsive in cold weather? As the inlet temperature is reduced, the air becomes 'more dense' packing a greater number of O2 molecules. This results in a more powerful combustion which means more horsepower to the wheels. Now you can have similar performance even on hot sunny days with this intercooler upgrade.

How An Intercooler Works

Unlike some performance engine upgrades, the Intercooler upgrade actually reduces the thermal loads on the engine because it greatly improves the efficiency of the intercooler over the stock unit. The lower inlet air tempertures helps to reduce the combustion temperatures which means less heat stress on the internal engine components. Whether you have a stock Mini or a track prepared Mini, this intercooler upgrade will lower the intake air temperature better than the stock unit.

And If You Have A Modified MINI...

The Intercooler upgrade becomes more critical if you have a modified Mini producing more power. The stock unit was designed to dissipate a certain amount of heat based on the power output of the stock engine. The stock intercooler becomes insufficient to dissipate the additional heat as the boost is increased, resulting in higher combustion temperatures. In this case, the intercooler upgrade becomes more critical to preserve the durability of the engine.

Regarding Horsepower

Technically, the Intercooler upgrade does not 'add' horsepower, but it reduces the losses which results in a net power gain at the wheels. The engine basically 'retains' the horsepower normally lost to high inlet temperatures. The difference is pronounced on warmer days where normally, the car would feel 'sluggish'. If you live in colder climates (ie Alaska) - the difference in performance may be less noticeable. But if you live in warmer climates or have hot summers, it's worth it!
